In this post, I talked about a bug in the current release of Windows Embedded Compact 2013 to which the build system was no longer able to recognize the .Net Framework after the update from 4.5 to 4.5.1 version. In the same post I also described a possible workaround to be able to continue to use Platform Builder with no problems waiting for an official patch from Microsoft.

With the January 2014 update that you can download here ... the bug has been fixed!

If you have used my workaround, you should restore everything as it was before starting from the sources.ce file in C:\WINCE800\public\common\oak\misc (removing the variable _DOTNET40ROOT) and restore the system PATH variable.

After this recovery step ... perform the update and everything will work as always!
